Grow Your Blog

I told myself and others 2014 was going to be a great year for blogging. I plan to do more reviews, DIY, crafts, recipes, & a little more about my personal life.

I do this on my spare time and free time. I love blogging & I think it’s fun. I’m sure a lot of you feel like this but a lot of people don’t understand. My brother wants me to start a blog for him { he’s joking } so he can get a lot of free stuff or get paid to do blogging things. I told him a ton of time and effort goes into this little hobby.

A few tips I’ve picked up along the way that have helped grow my blog. I haven’t been using these techniques long at all, more like a month. My networks have shot up which makes me happy.

These are only a few links I reference. I absolutely love Pinterest because that is where I found all of these great articles. Pinterest is a great way to find ways to step out of your comfort zone in your blogging world. These tools & tips will help you focus, schedule, & execute your blog plan.
